Hello Friends - The team here at AccuGlide are well and working hard to ensure we are available for you. We currently have no business disruptions at the moment however there is a chance we’ll be under lockdown next week. We’ll keep you updated if anything changes. 

 

If you need blades or anything to continue work in the next few weeks, please get your orders in by Friday 3/20 just in case.

 

We are taking simple voluntary precautions to ensure all products we ship can be received by you with peace of mind. We are now wiping down our products with disinfectant prior to placing them in shipping boxes - just in case. Our warehouse staff are also wearing protective masks and sanitizing hands before packing orders. While the chance of COVID on shipped items is very low, we feel these simple measures do not take much time and add to peace of mind. . 

 

Stay well,
